Is this game really due in 3 weeks? I've heard so little about it, and it really peeks my interest because I've always enjoyed a good, apocalyptic future. Hope this turns out as good as my expectations are right now.

I know a Russian word that she should know - Kalashnikov (Developer/designer and name of a specific weapon I'm almost positive will be presented in this game, look it up). As for Metro 2033, it's looking deep, dark and engaging... everything to love in a FPS game, any game in my case. I've been waiting for a survival horror like this for quite some time. The atmosphere alone is making me drool, not to mention the absence of a HUD. I'm definitely going to need this gem of a game. Even more than oxygen itself. :)

Fallout 3 and Bioshock, WTF. How bought mentioning stalker as half the development came from GSC game world

This game certainly looks great in the visuals department with decent animation too. From what we've seen the developers also have a keen eye for environment detail and believability. I do hope however that all this hard work on the visuals and setting will not be messed up due to cheesy voice acting and poorly written dialogue. If you look at Stalker beyond the hideous bugs, environmental attention to detail and visual quality was also good, but the actual story and character dialogue was quite bad, as though written by a 17 year old sc-fi writer wannabee. Let's hope Metro will not suffer from equally cheesy narrative or poor localisation / translation effort.

Is it me, or do the graphics in this game seem somewhat "cell-shaded" for the fleshy textures?

as long as the metro system isn't like fallout 3 where it was a copy and paste and a loading screen every time you go to a different section i think it'll be great

I really like that they have gone with the Dead Space'esque "no h.u.d" option. Lends to a far more immersive experience. I am actually really looking forward to this game now that I've got to know more of it's background

i don't think i like this formula ... watching people sitting down talking about what they saw or what we've read hundred of times. What the boy and the girl on the right were there for again ?? and the host still using the "next gen" expression, disappointing. it looks silly for something that tries to be serious.

Really good looking game, loved stalkers story line and setting. This looks to be about the same. Can't stand idiots thinking one of the more popular games, in the same kind of setting is always the first

It looks interesting...a bit dark and might not sell well just because the more casual player will/should avoid it. For some reason this looks more like what Hellgate "should" have been. For those of you calling on Fallout to be this games inspiration, you should be aware that Fallout was not the first Post-Apocalyptic game. While I am not saying that Fallout has not re-popularized the genre, you should take a look at Wasteland.
